Haig Park Activities

Haig Park Experiments was a City Renewal Authority project trialling a range of temporary events, activities and light-touch park improvements to create meaningful connections to the park for surrounding residents and wider Canberra. Dionysus worked in a consortium including Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres, Tait Network, and led by University of Canberra.

In 2020, the program extended to include less experimental and more long-term focussed projects to harness the incredible uplift and repetitional changes achieved in 2019.
